You Can Drive Up To Alaska’s Amazing Natural Wonder, Matanuska Glacier, To See It With Your Own Eyes

If you’re looking for a stunning sight right off of one of the largest highways in the state, the pullout in front of Matanuska Glacier in Glacier View, Alaska is an incredible place to stop and rest awhile. Alaska’s many glaciers are usually too far off the road system to see them without hiking in, but this is a gem that’s right out in the open for everyone to admire.
